Living and working at AMAUTA is a nice opportunity to get the know the country of Peru and the city of Cusco. In an international setting as AMAUTA offers you can share your impressions of the new, different culture with each other. Especially staying for a longer period and doing voluntary work in Cusco is a nice way to connect with the local people and learn about their culture. Of course, learning Spanish is the first step to start your journey.
We started our journey through South America here in Peru to learn some Spanish before travelling. Our whole family really liked the AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco. On the one side they were really welcoming and could meet all our needs, for kids and parents. On the other side the school has a perfect location in the historic center with lots of sights. Furthermore they are well organized and take good care of their students in daily life and daily activities. Thanks to AMAUTA Spanish School and our host family for the fantastic stay. We are more than happy to come back.
Studying Spanish in Cusco is a unique experience. The city is incredible! The opportunity to learn another language and make new friends from all over the world is fantastic. If you can, study in a Spanish speaking country.
Our guide book mentioned that Cusco is a great place to study Spanish. By chance we got to AMAUTA Spanish School and we were really lucky. The school is located close to the main square (2 minutes walking). The food is tasty, the rooms small, but nice, and all the teachers we had, were competent.
The comfortable terrace allows students, travellers and volunteers to get in contact. I would study again in AMAUTA Spanish School.
Volunteering in Cusco has been a great experience. I have been volunteering at the center for disabled children and have got to play with and entertain the kids. Seeing them smile shows me that I have done something to make their day better, and it is a very rewarding experience.
I have also loved staying in Cusco and learning about Peruvian culture. There is so much to learn and explore here. It is so different than the US and I value this experience to immerse myself in a place so different from home.
I have also enjoyed living at the student residence at AMAUTA. It´s very interesting to meet people from all over the world. It makes an even more cultural experience.
Monday morning I went to the Amauta Spanish school, which is just off of the Plaza de Armas. The people there were super friendly and I was so relieved and happy to have chosen this school with such good energy. I’m in a class of 3 beginners, so the learning environment is very personal. My teachers are fantastic and my brain is exploding with new Spanish knowledge. Amusingly, lots of the other students at AMAUTA are German speakers, so I’ve been speaking a lot of German as well. The other 2 students in my class are from Austria, so we’ve been learning Spanish together via a mixture of German and English. Good stuff. I’m happy to have some semblance of familiarity and a schedule, even if it’s just for this week.
I had a great time at AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco. Cusco is a great place from which to explore the South of Peru. Staying at the AMAUTA residence gives you the opportunity to make new friends and experience new things while learning Spanish and living in the center of amazing Cusco.
I have stayed with AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco for 6 weeks and I really enjoyed my time here. AMAUTA offers Spanish classes either in small groups (2 to 6 students) or single lessons if nobody else is at your level of Spanish at the moment. During our Spanish lessons we had a lot of fun, listened to South American music or discussed serious issues. I also learned a lot about Peruvian culture.
One week I went to AMAUTA in the Sacred Valley and I can truly recommend it to everybody who stays in Cusco for more than one week. You stay in a small village with your fellow students. Normally the weather is warmer than in Cusco and it´s a perfect opportunity to see more sights. As it is a small group you also get to know the other Spanish students better and get closer as a group
What I really liked about AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco is their beautiful school; the sunny terrace where you can hang out with other Spanish students. The food is really good as well as the rooms. Your sheets get changed on a regular base.
I was also really happy with my host family, they were really kind. I had big Peruvian lunches with the whole family what is really good to practice your Spanish.
I would definitely recommend AMAUTA Cusco!
Volunteering with AMAUTA Spanish School in Peru has been an exciting and wonderful experience. Teaching underprivileged children at the sports center in Cusco was at first a surreal experience, but with the help from AMAUTA and the staff at the sports center, I began to make a real difference to local children participating in sports.
Away from volunteering you will meet amazing and interesting people from all corners of the world, some of them will stay life long friends.
The school is one minute away from the center of Cusco, so everything is really close.
If you want to learn Spanish and volunteer in Cusco, AMAUTA Spanish School is definitely the place to go!
